We are currently offering several types of children's literacy courses: Interactive Baby Literacy, Interactive Toddler Literacy, and Interactive Children's Literacy.
Our mission for these courses is to assist families in fostering lifelong literacy relationships.
Every set of attendees is given their own set of materials to use during the class to maximize literacy exposure and to create a very personal experience between families and their children.
This course is not only interactive, but multi-sensory. With songs, literature, hand motions, and free play following (toys provided by EHP), various learning styles are addressed with our approach to education.

The D&C Children's Life Center
St. Michel, Haiti
Help us to Build a Better World from the ground up! Since 2012, we have partnered with Rosemarie Pierre, a native of St. Michel, to assist in building a life center for children that will give them the tools and education to reach a higher potential.
We hosted our first international voluntourism trip with volunteers from across the country and brought supplies and love to the mountain children.
In 2013, we completed a 5 city fundraising tour that included Salt Lake City, Honolulu, Sacramento, Seattle and Las Vegas to purchase resources and supplies for the center.
Currently, we continue to collect resources as well as plan to host another trip.

St. Pete Superhero Cleanups
The Everyday Hero Project hosts a Superhero Cleanup Series of events in various parts of St. Petersburg. The program will begin with a 30 minute interactive environmental education lesson informing attendees of the effects of waste products on our planet as well as locally. Following will be a 90 minute trash cleanup of the area, with hosts and attendees dressed up as superheroes. Social time to follow!
Join us for our 4th event in our St. Pete Superhero Cleanup series! Have you ever wanted to ride the Pedal Pub? Do you feel as though you are steward of our planet and want to make a difference? Then this is the volunteer opportunity for you!
Room on the pedal pub is limited to the first 15 RSVPs! But you can still join in even if you don't get to ride..Due to insurance regulation, we cant have riders younger than 18. BUT WE CAN HAVE PEOPLE BRING REGULAR BIKES AND TRAIL BEHIND IT! The Pedal Pub travels at 3-4 mph so walking along is also very easy. We just want it to be fun for younger people, and management from the Pedal Pub will be leading the bicycles behind us. What an amazing company to support!
Looking forward to Picking up the Pete with local Everyday Heroes! Feel free to dress as your unique Inner Hero! Volunteers will also receive time credits for the Everyday Hero Exchange Time Bank.
Peaceful Awareness Campaigns
Everyday Hero Project is proud to partner with Greenpeace for year 2 of "Jammin For the Planet", an incredible event to raise awareness about the effects of fossil fuels and offshore drilling. Various non profits from the Tampa Bay area are able to connect with citizens of St. Pete. Artists and musicians participate in the open mic to share their talents and passion to help save the planet.
After the recent and growing in intensity Hurricanes, the community in Pinellas County, FL decided to join forces and collect donations and supplies to support their recovery efforts. What began as disaster relief has turned into continued support and disaster preparedness. Operation Float helps to provide CERT training and SAR certification by partnering with organizations which offer these certifications as well as businesses in the community who sponsor the spaces for these trainings.
Over the past 3 years, we have assisted with donations and Activate Tour Volunteer Power for:
Hurricane Harvey (Texas)
Hurricane Irma (Florida)
Hurricane Maria (Puerto Rico)
Hurricane Michael (Florida)
Hurricane Florence (The Carolinas)
4th Annual Beachside
All though we are aware that Florida is not known for its harsh winters, we can all agree that it still gets pretty cold, particularly for those sleeping outside for everyday living. This is a special event because we know what it feels like to be out on the streets in the cold, and we know that we are not alone.
Objective: We collect as many blankets, jackets and various winter gear others are willing to donate to the cause. Through this event, we promote awareness of the homeless problems in the bay area.
With our small team of volunteers, we were able to make a sizeable impact for misfortunate brothers and sisters in the past three years, and we hope to double that this time around. With some many great people and travelers living in our area flocking down to our beaches to avoid the cold, there is never a shortage of winter clothes and helping hands.
We are collecting blankets from Dec. 2019 - January 2020 the National MLK Day of Service.
